During The Game Awards, Sony has announced that Returnal is coming to PC. Shown off with a short trailer, the PC version of Returnal doesn’t yet have a specific release date aside from an early 2023 window.
A PC release for Returnal has been in the works for a while. Earlier, hints of Returnal coming to PC became more evident thanks to a SteamDB listing for the game under the codename “Oregon”.
Back in September, a PC version of Returnal was spotted in a video that was taken down by Sony shortly afterwards. It was also spotted during a GDC presentation by developer Housemarque with one of the slides showing off a screenshot of the game with debug text indicating that it was running on a PC.
Returnal is a fast-paced shooter with roguelike elements that revolve around protagonist Selene exploring a strange alien planet. The game features quick action influenced by Housemarque’s experience in making bullet hell games.
Sony has had quite a busy year with releasing games on PC, having released Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection.
